The Abandonment Prayer
Gearing up for the cross (and for ordination interviews next week), I felt this prayer is appropriate:
Father, I abandon myself into your hands;
do with me what you will. Whatever you may do, I thank you.
I am ready for all, I accept all.
Let only your will be done in me, and in all your creatures.
I wish no more than this, O Lord.
Into your hands I commend my soul;
I offer it to you with all the love of my heart,
for I love you, Lord, so I need to give myself,
to surrender myself into your hands,
without reserve, and with boundless confidence,
for you are my Father.
- Charles de Foucald
